En su opinión, la inmigración ilegal nunca debería ser considerada un delito y la detención solo puede plantearse solo como un último recurso en el caso de los adultos y nunca para los niños.

El relator especial para los derechos de los migrantes, Felipe González Morales, ha pedido al Gobierno de Estados Unidos visitar el país para comprobar las condiciones en las que se encuentran los inmigrantes detenidos.

Between 2014 and 2018, some 282,180 asylum claims have been lodged by Venezuelans, over 113,000 in 2017 alone. While refugee procedures are overwhelmed, 5,661 have been recognized as refugees thus far.

The majority of Venezuelans who have left their country have no regular status, and are therefore more vulnerable to any form of exploitation, abuse, violence, trafficking and discrimination.

Thousands continue leave Venezuela daily and legally enter in neighbouring countries. UNHCR is stepping up its response accordingly.
